SGAET STEM Challenge

Fourth graders at Samuel S. Gaines Academy of Emerging Technologies worked individually while talking each other through a recently timed STEM challenge. Given a few resources, a limited amount of time, their own knowledge about science and chocolate, and a partner close enough to exchange their thinking with, they were able to design and engineer an insulator that would protect a Hershey’s kiss from melting in the hot sun!  Each design uniquely demonstrated our students’ talent and success. After one hour in the hot August sun, very little melting took place!
